Nuclear Test Film - Operation Ranger, Operation Buster/Jangle
DVD Copied by The Department of Energy, in cooperation with the Department of Defense, declassified a series of historical films on the nuclear weapons program. They were converted to videotape format to help preserve the films and to facilitate the declassification and release process. These films document the history of the development of nuclear weapons, starting with the first bomb tested at Trinity Site in southeastern New Mexico in July 1945..
The reviewer aglaeser has his/her facts totally wrong. The Internet Archive is not funded by public money, it is funded by individual contributions (including a sizeable contribution from the founder) and by the volunteer contributions of thousands of individuals.

pretty interesting, but not nice
This one appears quite ugly, because it has not been properly deinterlaced/decombed, but VLC can make the visual quality acceptable with post-processing:
[Video]/[Deinterlace mode]:Yadif (2x)
'Phosphor' deinterlacer also looks nice, like a real cathode-ray-tube, but it does not decomb as effectively and the X-ray radiation is missing.
Each of these films has its own character, they are all different in tone, style and aesthetics, this one features the first underground a-bomb test.
For myself, I am getting ready to stop my activities at the internet-archive. I will not upload any more material nor write reviews while Donald Trump is US-president. The reason for this is, that the man is politically totally incompetent and expressedly right-wing, then the internet-archive is mainly funded with public money and it is less dependent on donations than Wikipedia for instance. NSA-surveillance of the US-cloud is a reality, so there will be no more contributions to this platform from my side.
I will try to go self-hosted and continue my activities regarding free culture at my new domain instead: 'irregulaire.com', we shall soon see, how well this works out.
